Chairs made from refrigerators
It may be hard to imagine that a refrigerator can be turn into a chair, but Vander Kooij discovered a way to make this possible.
This Dutch designer uses a robot to melt refrigerators to create 3D printed chairs.
Just less then 300 years ago, people like Ben Franklin were printing documents in a printing press by stamping each page.
Now, thanks to technology, we see more and more companies trying to do 3D printing.
The robot that Vander Kooij built can produce 4,000 3D printed chairs a year out of recycled materials.
The “Pulse Chair” prints entirely out of old refrigerators that were melted down to create the base material.
After the fridge was melted, Kooij adds a dye.
This robot can also make children’s chairs, rocking chairs, small tables and bar stools.
These items are currently sold for $1,300 each.
